Tomlinson Misses Practice; Doubtful for Sunday in Pittsburgh

The news for former MVP LaDainian Tomlinson is not good, as the back missed practice today, and also confirmed to the media that he’s dealing with a torn groin tendon. “It’s definitely torn,” Tomlinson said after sitting out Wednesday’s practice. “I can’t really elaborate on it because I don’t want to give too much information away.”

The back was hurt in the 52-21 win over the Broncos on the final Sunday night game of the season to get his team to the postseason. He carried the ball five times vs the Colts in a win Saturday night, but couldn’t do anything else, and had to turn things over to Darren Sproles, who likely will start vs the Steelers Sunday.

“It feels like something is tearing away from my leg. That’s how I know that it’s messed up because before, when I’ve had groin injuries, I haven’t felt that,” said Tomlinson. “Whenever you feel a popping or like it’s tearing, that’s usually not good.”
